Art worthiness

I think if I could go back in time and give myself a message, it would be to reiterate that my value as an artist doesn’t come from how much I create. I think that mindset is yoked to capitalism. Being an artist is about how and why you touch people’s lives, even if it’s […]

My creative plate keeps filling up

Change is in the air

I seem to have no interest in making visual art at this point in time with COVID-19 safety measures sapping spontaneity. I depend on spontaneity to keep my creative juices flowing.

As yet untitled white line linoleum block This week’s experiments in the studio involve printing a linoleum block (unframed) which I carved using the white line technique. I’m playing around with a different papers (BFK Rives and Hahnemuhle Copperplate), different printing tools (etching press, brayer and Japanese baren), and different colors (Hansa Yellow, Scarlet Red […]
